Secrets and Lies by archetype
The tangled web: The distortion of reality as the weight of lies compound upon one another. We all lie to ourselves. We all keep secrets.
How many times must a lie be told before you start believing it's true?
How long will it take for that truth to become real?
How much time must pass before that reality becomes unwavering belief?
How many generations are born before people are willing to kill for your lie?
This is how serial killers are born. This is how holocausts are allowed to continue. This is how racism thrives.
All with the power of secrets and lies.
